Destination guide

Explore the buzzing atmosphere of Pompano Beach

If fishing and boating tickle your fancy, it'll only take a trip to Pompano Beach to find out why many people call it ‘the heart of the Gold Coast’. Long piers, a coral reef, and a sprawling coastline define the atmosphere of this beachside gem. The downtown area is the place to go for shopping, fine dining, and evening entertainment. Consider yourself more of a land dweller than a seafarer? Numerous green parks provide perfect spots for picnics, sports, and sunbathing. Pompano Beach vacation rentals are plentiful and as luxurious as they are abundant

Things to do

Embrace the spirit of Florida at Pompano Beach

If you want to leave Pompano Beach with a unique souvenir, don't miss the opportunity to peruse over 250 antique dealers at the Hillsboro Antique Mall. Get cultural Florida-style by watching a locally directed play at the Curtain Call Playhouse, which puts on many productions for the kids. If you'd rather enjoy a staging under the stars, the 3,000-seater Pompano Beach Amphitheater promises a memorable live music performance. Of course, a visit to Pompano Beach isn’t complete without a stroll along the picturesque beach or a visit to the casino, which houses 1,500 slots and dozens of card tables.

Activities

Quench your thirst for water activities in Pompano Beach

Pack your scuba gear and fishing rods because Pompano Beach is all about water activities. Diving is especially popular around the off-shore coral reef, where colorful and diverse marine life takes center stage. If you're more of an angler than a diver, find a comfortable spot to cast your line from the 1000-foot-long pier. Pack plenty of sunscreen for days at the beach, and visit one of over 50 parks for picnics, yoga, and land-based sports. Feel like splashing out? A Pompano Beach vacation rental will put you near to numerous downtown shopping complexes that will be sure to satisfy your appetite.

Weather

Pompano Beach invites you all year round

No season should keep you away from a visit to Pompano Beach, where temperatures rarely go below 59 degrees in the winter and experiences only half the precipitation of the average US city. You'll need sunscreen regardless of when you plan to stay, and many Pompano Beach family vacation rentals include pools. The crisp sea air will keep you comfortable in the summer, but if you prefer milder temperatures to enjoy the parks and high street strolls, spring and fall are your best options.

Natural features

The natural wonder of colorful reefs in Pompano Beach

Pompano Beach is an urbanized area with a buzzing atmosphere, but its coastline facing the Atlantic Ocean is what gives the place its vibe. Green spaces are dotted around the city, hosting visitors, local exercisers, and wildlife alike. However, while park and beach birds fascinate many, the coral reefs are where you'll find bountiful underwater creatures and plant species of bright colors—you also might want to check out the numerous shipwrecks if you're planning to test your scuba skills.
